The 50 Most Embarrassing Athlete/Coach Photos
When we see athletes on TV, they are role models and people our children can look up to. When athletes cross the line to celebrity, it usually happens in events like these.
So when photos like these surface, they remind us of how human athletes and celebrities actually are, but also how athletes and celebrities also do dumb s%@t when they are F'd up!
No further explanation needed...

50. Jeff Reed, the Most Noticed Kicker in the NFL
The former Steelers kicker probably had plenty of time to think up this tasty number while he wasn't doing anything on the Steelers sidelines.
It's almost too difficult to place this photo on the slideshow, considering embarrassing is a relative term, and there's about a half dozen other photos on the web of this guy in not-so-flattering situations.
I can't even poke fun at this Jersey Shore wannabe. It's just too easy.
49. Gary Barnett Loves His Players
Caught in a photo taken at the perfect time, this photo of then-Colorado head coach Gary Barnett circulated in correlation with comments he released regarding a female kicker who claimed she was cut from the team due to sexism.
Sexism is the least of Colorado's worries...
48. Norman Rockwell Slice of Life
This photo has so much going on, it makes the countdown on multiple levels. First, it's embarrassing for the dude getting it right in the kisser.
Next, look how amazingly close it comes to hitting the baby.
Next, check out the woman with the cool shades completely not reacting at all while snacking on her Cracker Jacks.
Finally, what is the woman doing with the big green box in front of her face?
P.S. Love the look of the kid at the bottom middle of the shot.
47. Alex Rodriguez and The Slap
No, Alex. You don't get a high five until you round third. Silly juicers.

46. Michael Irvin Seems Excited To Go To Jail
Only Michael Irvin could make a mug shot turn into an opportunity to look like a nice guy. Irvin has a serious rap sheet, but you wouldn't know it by this happy-go-lucky dude in the orange jump suit.
45. Casey Hampton Parties Large
Casey Hampton, the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman, got caught partying like a rock star. Here he is doing his best Pitbull impression. Whose hand is that on his Buddha belly?
44. Jimmy Rollins
Jimmy Rollins has seen some tough times in Philly lately, summarized in this snap shot of an at-bat he'd like to forget.
43. World Cup Promo That Makes No Sense
I guess it couldn't get any worse, but I still don't get it.
42. UK Prime Minister Boycots Hairspray
UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown accidently lit his hair on fire while being handed the Olympic torch. Suddenly the Olympics coming to London wasn't the coolest thing Europe had seen since deodorant.
41. Yoga Is Officially Not the Most Relaxing Thing To Do on a Mat
Is a sportsmanship point awarded to the guy when he cups the other guy? Seems like genuine hospitality to me.
40. DeSean Jackson Is No Wingman
Seriously, don't ever take DeSean Jackson to the club with you. He doesn't know how to score.
This is him in the 2005 Army All-American Bowl, swan-diving to the one-yard line. After a short review, it turns out that while diving for no apparent reason, Jackson actually touched the ball to the ground outside of the end-zone stripe. Brilliant.
39. John Daly Mug Shot
John Daly looks like a backwoods professional drinker with style. Love the buttoned-up top with the collar popped. Tip of the cap to your swag Mr. Daly.
38. Failure at Its Finest
Epic fail. The bright side for this guy is actually the hurdle itself. He will forever be denying it's him, and no one can prove otherwise.
37. Robert Barker Epitomizes Redneck
The Florida youth football coach was booked on child abuse after evidently making his 13-year-old stepson run wind sprints while pointing a BB gun at him.
The killer tan line begs thoughts of what the hat must look like...
36. Foul Ball With Foul Intentions
It's OK though. It only touched the tip...of the bat. Pervert.
35. Jeff Reed BONUS
BREAKING NEWS: Pauly Shore has a secret fraternal twin! Nah, wait, it's just Jeff Reed again.

34. Larry Eustachy
The former Iowa State men's basketball coach got caught in this photo at a University of Missouri house party.
A few notes on this photo: That Adidas turtle neck isn't incognito at all. He's an admitted alcoholic and still drinks Blue Ribbon, and that's not his wife.
This photo cost Eustachy his job. I wonder why?
33. Kobe Bryant Loves To Look Stupid in White
RuPaul eat your heart out! Wherever he/she/it is...
32. Henry Burris Is an A-Cup
In the Canadian Football League, you're lucky if you get noticed by NFL scouts. In Henry Burris' case, he figured he could make it to the NFL through Maxim magazine.
Check out the QB for the Calgary Stampeders as he poses in a black bra. Taking your feminine side a little too far Henry.
31. I Bet Jason Taylor Wants This One Back
The Jets outside linebacker agreed to do some modeling.
The intense training schedule of an NFL lineman and/or linebacker must be strenuous. The training regimen for this shoot consists of two steps:
1. Stuff shorts with socks
2. Lay on hammock
30. Terrence Cody Looks Like a Melted Barbie Doll
Perhaps the funniest part of this photo is the look on Cody's face as the NFL official is touching his shoulder while he has no shirt on.
29. Jared Allen
I'm pretty sure Jesus would be anti-firearms. This photo of Jared Allen, the Minnestoa Vikings defensive end, is therefore a contradiction.
28. Matt Leinart
Look how playfully freaked out the blonde looks as Matt Leinart's tongue is dangerously getting closer and closer.
Alcohol is fun.
27. Funny Point of View
This move in wrestling is called "The Nutter Butter."
26. Dude, It Is a Bug Bite? Nah, Looks More Like a Rash
Health care must be out-of-sight expensive overseas.
25. Tom Brady, The Sensitive Guy
Is Tom Brady actually holding a goat with gloves and a sleveless shirt? Oh my! Look at the face he's making!
24. Alex Rodriguez Mirror Image BONUS
Great, the only thing more frightening than Alex Rodriguez is another Alex Rodriguez. What was the thought process behind this photo? I still don't get it.
23. Not Sure What I'm Lookin' At
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Check out the people in the background. He's not getting away with anything.
22. Marv Albert
Forcible sodomy and assault. "Oooohhh! And dunking is not allowed! What a play by my ex for pressing charges!"
21. Kobe BONUS
Can someone tell me what this is supposed to be?
20. Soccer Player Loves His Greens
Don't you just love it when someone snaps a pic at just the perfect moment? Ants must look like rhinos when you're that close to the ground.
19. David Beckham Caught Staring
There's actually so many of these photos, David could have his own slideshow. Guys, we've all done this, but what compares when your wife is Posh Spice? Feel free to comment below with your thoughts.
18. Andre Agassi Actually Had Hair, I Swear To God...
...and now I have the photo to prove it!
Check out Andre in this classic '80s shot. Note the jeans and sport coat, with the look at a random object off camera that seemed to make him very happy.
Has everyone seen the new Yao Ming Old Spice commercial? The new scent is called "Sweet and Salty Sweaty."
16. Sammy Sosa Just Realized His Condom Broke
Quick! Give him some air!
Actually, Sammy was going through a rejuvenation process that temporarily made the pigment in his skin fade. Seems like poor timing right before a majorly-publicized event.
However, Sammy is no stranger to bad timing, like trying to set the single-season record for home runs while fellow juicer Mark McGwire had the same plans. Or maybe swinging at a bad pitch while his bat is corked.
15. Ben Roethlisberger BONUS
Aww, and they look so excited...they didn't even see it coming.
Learned something from this photo: Big Foot wears fraternity clothes.
14. And the Tennis Mini-Skirt Was Born
Long before Serena Williams, even before Martina Hingis. Maria Sharapova? Forget about it.
This chick started a revolution.
13. Allen Iverson Needs a Red Bull
Since when is being sleepy while having a simultaneous bad hair day a crime?
Oh, he was booked for speeding, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana. That's it?
12. Matt Ryan, Get This Guy a Tissue!
During a televised game on Fox, Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan was caught showing off some skid marks as he hit the turf. You can clearly see some kind of brown mark in the general area.
Maybe the Falcons should consider changing up the road uniforms.
11. Robin Ventura Will Never Live This One Down
Can you imagine being owned by Nolan Ryan? For the rest of your life, he will be signing photos of punching the man out of you.
In Robin's defense, he had a great career.
10. Michael Phelps: An Olympic God and the Achilles' Bong
Michael Phelps' fierce training diet:
2. Steak dinner the night before competition
3. Salad for greens on race day, plus protein shake
4. Night after race: Funyons, Doritos, Hot Pockets, Hot Cheetos and a glass of grape Kool-Aid
9. Jimmy Clausen: The Summer He'll Never Forget
Wow, I'd rather see Chris Farley's Chippendales audition 10 more times before catching a glance at this photo again.
What is going on here anyway? Wait, I take that back. Don't want to know.
8. Shawn Johnson Turns on Mark Ballas' Lightswitch
No, it's not AFV. It's Dancing with the Stars. Easy mistake to make when you see Tom Bergeron and a giant boner in the same shot.
Mark Ballas, a ballroom dancer that works for the show, got caught behind Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson in an agonizing moment. See for yourself.
7. What Are You Doing Jimmy!?
And a pink cozy? For a Heineken?
Really, this photo is inviting. I'd love to have an overly-tan grandpa running around my South Beach home too!
6. French Tinkler
During the 2008 Beijing Olympics, this French gymnast wasn't able to get to the bathroom before the start of her routine, and could no longer hold it.
Wow, it's funny how different standards can be from one cultural area to the next.
5. Ben Roethlisberger and the Fashion Over-Statement
OK, you know what joke is coming, but I'm going to say it anyway...
"Ben decided to start screen printing his own shirts, and his first prototype was a phrase he's heard hundreds of times from 19-year-old girls at night-club women's bathrooms all over the country."
4. LeBron Gains MVP Votes, Loses His Mind
"Yeah, I think the ESPYs are on. Oh here it...wait what?"
My reaction to the 2007 ESPYs as I turned to the channel to find LeBron James dressed like MC Hammer doing his best impression of Bobby Brown. If you look very closely, you can see Bobby Brown's trademark white spot above the upper lip.
3. Posterized Doesn't Begin To Describe It
What a cocky thing to do. Just show Nelson what he could aspire to be some day. However, I don't think there's a winner on either side here.
2. Friar Tebow
You want so badly to feel bad for rookies when they get hazed by teammates. Then you remember they get signed to ridiculous dollar figures before taking a snap in the NFL, and you lose interest immediately.
Here's Tim Tebow's new dew...do? doo? Whatever.
1. Oscar De La Hoya and the Fish Nets
Evidently we cannot confirm nor deny the authenticity of these photos. However, it doesn't really matter too much anymore. There was a lawsuit, a countersuit and a no-show for De La Hoya in court. Therefore, the pictures stand!
